The ISPRS SC Virtual Rooms
The ISPRS SC Virtual Rooms was an initiative that hoped to give another good reason to #StayAtHome during the quarantine season for many. Due to its success, the Consortium decided to continue this initiative as a way of bridging the generation gap, a dynamic learning platform and a venue for our members to meet amazing people in ISPRS and in our profession.
It aims to help us enjoy our time at home by creating spaces to still remain connected with our communities. We are navigating a new way of strengthened communication, changing lifestyles, improving work and research practices and being mindful of what truly matters. The ISPRS SC would like to provide a platform where everyone can meet and connect, and we have prepared different virtual rooms for everyone.
Previous: The Wisdom of the White Elephants - A Life for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing [17 June 2020]
Last June 17, 2020, Prof. Gottfried Konecny, former ISPRS President, celebrated his 90th birthday. As the most significant living personality in Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing, the Society honored Gottfried’s life-long achievements and his relentless service to ISPRS. The ISPRS White Elephant Club (WEC) together with the ISPRS Student Consortium organized this special event, which featured some of Gottfried’s long-time friends and colleagues with whom he shaped the ISPRS over a long period. We did not only cover the past but also opened a window into the future, which was always also part of Gottfried’s far-reaching interests and ambitions.
